This report is related to bug 24948, originally submitted by Aryeh Gregor, but
that one is marked as concerning FlaggedRevs, so I'm making another report to
be found by a core developer.

Currently all autopromoted groups are implicit, cannot be removed via
Special:UserRights and the autopromotion is checked on each call of
User::getEffectiveGroups() rather than on certain events. 

It's clearly not enough for FlaggedRevs which had to develop their own
autopromotion system which bypasses the above limitations. 

The point is that the core autopromotion system should be upgraded so that
FlaggedRevs could use it. 

In the original bug report I have attached a patch which I'm also attaching
here (for a newer revision). The patch is described at comment 1 for bug 24948.
I don't know if it's ok (probably it's not) so don't hesitate to write
everything from scratch if you prefer.
